FORTY YEARS OF FUN GREEK DINING
Welcome to Theo’s!
Theo and Mary Theodosakis opened the doors in 1976 with the vision to provide authentic Greek dishes served in a relaxing and beautiful setting. Forty years later, that promise continues and the vision expands to include collaborating with local food producers throughout the Okanagan Similkameen, an increasing list of award winning Okanagan wineries, and cultivating greens and vegetables from our garden in Naramata and from our new rooftop garden above our restaurant. We are here to celebrate food, to celebrate families and to champion the potential of our collective lives. Thanks for joining us.
GREEK RECIPES INSPIRED BY OKANAGAN INGREDIENTS
The philosophy of our food is simple. Everything that we serve, we make in our own kitchen. That includes our soups, our dips, phyllo pies, our thick yoghurt for our yoghurt and honey dessert, and our dairy and non-dairy ice creams (thanks Linda!). When we can, we harvest vegetables and greens like amaranth and purslane from our own gardens and work with a widening circle of local food producers.
We like to offer authentic Greek dishes, especially from Crete, that feature the flavour and qualities of the ingredients themselves. We feature authentic appetizers like Yigantes, Dako, Vegetarian Dolmathes, Fava and many others that not only nurture our bodies, but nurture our connection to our ancestors and the foods that sustained them. We feature main courses like Rabbit Stifatho, Lamb Shoulder Oregano, Salmon in phyllo and Moussaka that are layered with flavours and demonstrate the wide range of Greek village cooking. It’s true, we bring in Oregano branches from Greece and Barley rusks from our favourite bakery in Crete.
We admit we sometimes get a little crazy about our food. We like it that way.
